Despite issues with AI and a level of complexity that will likely frustrate new players, Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a well-rounded experience with stunning visuals and extensive replay value.
Eugen Systems’s Steel Division 2 is an incredibly detailed and immersive RTS game, but its lacking content and virtually non-existent accessibility makes this a hard sell for anyone outside of Eugen’s fanbase.
Aggressors: Ancient Rome decentralizes the Civilization formula, placing a heavier emphasis on combat. Couple that with an objective system and extensive mod support, and you have a game that can keep your interest for hours.
A great Ace Combat title that follows its past formula too closely, giving you the great flight simulator you expect and no more.
World War 3 had a rocky launch and will hopefully be fully redeemed by the development staff. The gameplay combined with the deep customization really does complete a modern military shooter dream. This title offers players the ability to be in full control of their gear and character, all while being fun. While this title is in the infant stages of Early Access, it shows great promise to be a fantastic experience in the long run. While map variation and different weapon choices and game modes seem to be limited as of now, I am sure we will see more and more content added in the future. Godspeed, The Farm 51.
Fast-paced, tactical, unforgiving and downright fun. Insurgency: Sandstorm is an upcoming first- person shooter being developed by New World Interactive, the company behind the original Insurgency, as well as Day of Infamy (both of which boast Very Positive overall review ratings on Steam). Sandstorm was announced back in February of 2016, but didn’t really gain traction or too much hype until about mid-2018. With the pre-order beta going live in early August, I leapt at the chance to try out a sequel to one of my favorite shooters. After about four days of gameplay, I can’t think of a more fun first-person shooter that has released this year.
Available worldwide later this month on November 30, the Arma 3 Tac-Ops DLC Singleplayer Mission Pack challenges players to take part in three distinct military operations.
Lil Tanks is a solid title, providing four distinct game modes, twenty unique types of enemies, four tank variants, and multiple power-ups and weapon upgrades. The gameplay is uncomplicated and offers an enjoyable experience. However, it lacks any form of customization, and it might become repetitive after a few hours. Lil Tanks succeeds as a side-scrolling shooter, but there is a scarcity of originality in the game. That said, genre enthusiasts should certainly be entertained, especially at its current price point.
Tankers of War Thunder can look forward to modern main battle tanks such as the renown M1A2 Abrams and T-14 Armata, while the game’s pilots will see supersonic jet aircraft like the F-22 Raptor and T-50 PAK FA, as well as a multitude of attack helicopters.
Zombie City Defense 2 does a lot of things but doesn’t quite know what it wants to be. It seems trapped between strategy and tower defense, and while a combination of the two sounds enticing, it just doesn’t have the dexterity to do both at the moment. It’s a fun concept when things make sense, but for now, it's still prone to bursts of enjoyment against waves of frustration.
